All Hallows Crane Art!

Cranes have always been important in the history and culture of this country and over 270 place names derive from the crane (which is more than any other bird) using the Anglo Saxon suffix Cran and the Norse suffix Tran.

This is something that the staff and pupils from All Hallows prep school at East Cranmore near Shepton Mallett take very seriously. The school is based at Cranmore Hall and even their School emblem is a crane!

So proud are they of this conection that they linked a whole school project to the Great Crane Project!

As part of this pupils produced crane inspired artwork from recycled material. Some of these were displayed at there 75th anniversary open day and as part of the Somerset Art Weeks.

I think they look brilliant and congratulations to everyone involved!
